Went to this little gem for our anniversary breakfast. Had Maggies Farm Fresh Egg plate with cheese grits. Loved it and very filling. Very reasonable.

We had a lovely Sunday brunch sitting outside in the small garden area listening to the fountains. Fluffy biscuits, buttery eggs, grits, good coffee and friendly wait staff.
